Nathan Fillion Interested in DC Hero ‘Booster Gold’



Vin Diesel already has a campaign to land a role in Inhumans, maybe Nathan Fillion should do the same for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow?

[dropcap size=small]W[/dropcap]hile we all know that Castle star Nathan Fillion has shown interest in rebooting the cancelled science-fiction series Firefly, did you know the actor has a list of superheroes from both the DC and Marvel Universes that he’d like to play in a movie/television series?



At the 2015 Wizard World Comic Con in Chicago, Nathan Filion was asked if he could play any character in both DC Comics and Marvel comics, who would he play?

“I think I could take a pretty good crack at Booster Gold,” responded Nathan Fillion. “That’s kind of my niche — show-offy, vain. I think I could handle that — not too bright.”

Of course if the opportunity to play Booster Gold, an ex-professional football player who steals a power suit that gives him superhuman abilities and travels back in time to turn himself into a superhero celebrity, falls through Nathan Fillion has several other superheroes that he is a fan of.

“I think Ambush Bug. Remember that guy? Little bit off his rocker. You’d never see my face,” explained Nathan Fillion. “But I think Greatest American Hero is due for a reboot.”
